It’s a fine nice trail to walk along the waterfall, can take a closed watch of this famous waterfall . As a tourism attraction, it’s not too crowded, enjoy silence

Great natural beauty but the structure to get to the top is old and rusty. A fair amount of garbage and plastic around it to despite the many bins.

This is a lovely waterfall, a really nice spot to stop. Only a short walk up to a great viewpoint of the falls. Nice photo opportunities but be prepared to get a bit wet!

The waterfall is impressively long and not too wide. The shorter width makes the fall of the water more dramatic. A cluster of souvenir and snack stands line the highway for a long distance in each direction.

Pretty waterfalls about 20 minutes from Sapa. Short steep walk to about halfway up the falls. Need to buy a ticket at the bottom of the falls about 20,000V. See these falls on the way back from seeing the Love Waterfalls.
